How Does Mercedes-Benz 4MATIC® All-Wheel Drive Work?

There are four different ways the 4MATIC® All-Wheel Drive system works to enhance your Norwalk drives. These different drive-enhancing benefits include:

  • Torque distribution to all four tires to maximize control on any type of road condition you may face.
  • The 4MATIC® AWD system monitors wheel spin to ensure each wheel is moving the way it should, ensuring better control when turning or shifting and allowing the wheels move at the speed needed to gain that control.
  • This system also monitors road conditions to help adjust the brakes and engine output to match the snowy, icy, and rainy roads.
  • The braking, acceleration, and steering all depend on the power in your vehicle’s tires. This force is heightened with this system as the power is sent to all four tires instead of only two.
